I welcome the Government's recent decision to give all babies the meningitis B vaccine free on the NHS.
I have been actively involved in supporting Meningitis Now’s campaign to make this vaccine available to all infants, free of charge, through the NHS.
Many families in the Rother Valley have been touched by meningitis in some way and there is no doubt that this vaccine will save lives. There is still some way to go as the Government now needs to reach an agreement with the vaccine company.
I look forward to the day that the first child receives the meningitis B jab free on the NHS.
